The exception should probably be just ignored.  Andrew, thoughts?

Here's an example error traceback:

      Traceback (most recent call last):

          await w.wait_closed()

Note: this is going to miss Python 3.8.1 as I'm releasing 3.8.1rc1 right now.  Please address this before 3.8.2 (due in February).

Sorry, I've missed this issue.
I'll address it in a while.

Why is this issue marked as a release blocker? Is it a Python 3.8 regression, or just a regular bug?

> The exception should probably be just ignored.

It looks like the "ERROR_NETNAME_DELETED" (win32 error 64) exception is already ignored in multiprocessing's connection.wait(): Would it be appropriate to ignore it here as well?

I think that we should still retain the ConnectionResetError for "ERROR_OPERATION_ABORTED", but just specifically ignore "ERROR_NETNAME_DELETED". Ignoring "ERROR_OPERATION_ABORTED" doesn't seem correct here since it's relied on for cancelling file I/O (see

The patch should be straightforward. I'll test it locally and then open a PR, unless Andrew is currently working on it.

Downgrading priority on this, agreed with Victor.

> Is this open for a PR?

I opened a PR for this issue a bit ago (applies Yury's suggestion of suppressing the exception), just waiting on review from Andrew when he finds the time to do so.

I have noticed the following on Linux too:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/config/custom_components/kef_custom/", line 327, in _disconnect
    await self._writer.wait_closed()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/asyncio/", line 323, in wait_closed
    await self._protocol._closed
  File "/config/custom_components/kef_custom/", line 299, in _send_message
    await self._writer.drain()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/asyncio/", line 339, in drain
    raise exc
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/asyncio/", line 814, in _read_ready__data_received
    data = self._sock.recv(self.max_size)
ConnectionResetError: [Errno 104] Connection reset by peer
after which every invocation of `await asyncio.open_connection` fails with `ConnectionRefusedError` until I restart the entire Python process.

IIUC, just ignoring the exception will not be enough.

This issue is about the `ProactorEventLoop` for Windows specifically, however, my process uses the default event loop on Linux.
